China's national badminton team is preparing ahead of next weekend's Sudirman Cup. China has dominated the event winning seven times since its inception in 1989. And the group has ambitions for an eighth crown.

The Chinese National Badminton Team is making every preparation to ensure success at the upcoming Sudirman Cup.

Despite being teammates -- each individual is put through a different training regiment in order to maximize their efforts.

Fu Haifeng, Chinese Men's Badminton Team, said, "The coach has considered our age. Cai Yun and I are older, so we have different exercises than some of our younger teammates. We also have a coach in charge of our training. We focused on traditional strength training, and the younger players have some innovative ways of training."

Just like the men's doubles team, the women's doubles training is also using new techniques. They use a rope to increase their strength.
